We collect some or all of the following personal data from you: the IP address or domain name of the computer you use to connect to our website, and information about your visit to our Liftoff Accelerator website via Cookies (you’ll find more information on our Cookie use below).
A cookie is a small text file that is downloaded onto ‘terminal equipment’ (e.g. a computer or smartphone) when you access a website. It allows the website to recognise that user’s device and store some information about the user’s preferences or past actions. Most browsers support Cookies, but you can set your preferences to decline them and delete them whenever you like.
Why we collect your personal data
We process your data to improve your experience on our website and to share information with you via the Liftoff Accelerator newsletter.
On what basis we collect your personal data
We process your data on the basis of your consent, given in the cookie pop-up when you visit our website for the first time. This consent can be changed at any time, by writing us at privacy(at)spacetecpartners.eu.
How we process your data
Your personal data will be retained for a period of two years, unless we are required by law to retain your personal data for a longer period of time. Your data are not subject to automatic decision procedures.
SpaceTec Partners follows strict data security procedures to ensure that your personal information is not damaged, destroyed, or disclosed to a third party without your permission and to prevent unauthorised access. The computers storing the information are kept in a secure environment with restricted physical access. We use secure firewalls and other measures to restrict electronic access.
If the data must be transferred to a third party, we require them to have in place similar measures to protect your personal data.
All of the information we collect or record is restricted to our offices. Only persons who need the information to fulfil their duties are granted access to personal data. We will explicitly ask you when we need information to identify you. We may require you to cooperate with our security checks before we disclose information to you. You can update the personal information that you give us at any time by contacting us directly.
